Integrated Platelet Aggregation TestingRethinking platelet aggregation: integrated, standardized, available.
Labs of all sizes need an alternative to traditional platelet aggregation testing that is less complex, easier to integrate into the daily workflow, and less dependent on the specially-trained lab technician, while also producing more-consistent results.
Integrated onto routine coagulation analyzers—the Sysmex® CS-2500 and CS-5100 Systems1 and the Atellica® COAG 360 System2—platelet aggregation becomes more manageable, reliable, and accessible with easy-to-use, standardized testing.
Features & Benefits
- The systems enable access to platelet aggregation testing to provide additional information for therapeutic decisions and complete the diagnostic picture.
- The systems can process low sample volumes and produce standardized results for geriatric and pediatric samples that enable immediate diagnosis and improved patient outcomes.
- After initial sample preparation (preparing PRP and PPP plasma) and loading, systems can perform platelet aggregation testing automatically for five agonists without additional pipetting steps or other dedicated hands-on time.
- Test scheduling is simplified, because platelet aggregation testing can be performed by any lab technician at any time on a routine coagulation analyzer.
- The Atellica® COAG 360 System2 intelligently identifies hemolytic samples that are not eligible for platelet aggregation testing, preventing incorrect result reporting and saving reagents, patient samples, time, and cost.
- Integrated platelet aggregation testing eliminates a dedicated instrument for platelet aggregation testing and reduces the number of consumables to manage and store.

700+ publications in peer-reviewed journals confirm the convenient and reliable testing of platelet-function disorders using Siemens Healthineers PFA Systems.
Integrated platelet aggregation provides cost-effective system consolidation for detection of inherited, acquired, or drug-induced platelet disorders.
Streamlined workflow with fewer instruments and less specialized staff leads to significant time and resource savings.
Integrated platelet aggregation testing1 on routine hemostasis analyzers requires up to 44% less sample volume4 per test than aggregometers and produces standardized results for geriatric and pediatric samples that enable immediate diagnosis and improved patient outcomes.
